Buffalo Exchange San Francisco Festival

Festival Nation: Festival Style from Burning Man and Beyond

By Buffalo Exchange San Francisco (Haight St)

When you think festival fashion, you probably think high-waisted denim shorts, Western boots, flowy crochet blouses and large sunglasses. However, there are many different festivals, attracting a wide variety of demographics and fashion trends. From Burning Man to Coachella to Sasquatch, we explore festival fashion across the nation!

Classic Festival Style

Some of the more classic festivals include Coachella, Lollapalooza and, for those traveling abroad, Glastonbury. At these festivals, you expect to see celebrities making appearances in the latest summer trends. Unlike other festivals, Glastonbury is known for being muddy, so Wellington boots are a must!  Festivals in warmer, dryer climates lean towards a blend of Western and bohemian styles. Lacey tanks and crochet blouses are accented by fringey purses, embroidered vests, statement necklaces, bold sunglasses and hats.

EDM

In stark contrast are electronic, dance and performance-based festivals such as EDC, Ultra and Electric Zoo. To match the colorful, lively atmosphere, attendees sport bright colors, metallic, rainbow and neon, pairing tutus, sparkly bikini bottoms or artful shorts with imaginative body suits and hand-decorated bralettes. Colored wigs, decorative headpieces, leg warmers, fishnets, fanny packs and fuzzy vests accentuate these looks!

Buffalo Exchange How to Sell Your Clothes

How to Sell Your Clothes

By Jessica Pruitt, Buffalo Exchange HQ

Whether your closet is overflowing (literally) or you’re just looking to make a little extra cash, you may find yourself wondering how to sell your clothes. It all starts with cleaning out your closet. Find out the top tips for reorganizing your closet and reselling your clothes at Buffalo Exchange.

1) Clean out early, clean out often

Capsule wardrobe specialists and minimal lifestyle gurus recommend cleaning out every three months – once per every season change. If you’re overwhelmed just thinking about it, try every six months. When you clean out, sort into three categories: out-of-season items to be stored away in plastic tubs, worn-out items to be donated and items to sell.

Remember that most clothing resale stores start buying for the upcoming season a few months in advance. At Buffalo Exchange, for example, we start taking Fall inventory in July. We also buy current, high quality items in excellent condition out of season.  Moving to Hawaii (you lucky duck!) and wondering what to do with the brand new Patagonia jacket you’ll never wear? Bring it in!

Menswear

By Buffalo Exchange San Francisco (Haight St.)

Fashion knows no gender! Men, women, and people alike shop our racks, eager to add pieces to their wardrobe. They look for the “Peace and Love” fashion trend taking cues from the 70s. Vintage Levis, western button-ups, suede vests, and cowboy boots are no longer for costume parties, they are an everyday staple. Vintage chic not your thing? Norm core and casual basics are also a lively, but understated trend. Match oversized men’s tees and tapered shirts to boyfriend pants or fitted men’s denim. Stop into your local Buffalo Exchange and celebrate style!
